Actress Ashley Judd visited the city Sunday to drum up support for President Obama. But she was also there to speak about issues such as health care and education and how they relate to women. "And when we can empower and educate women, let them plan and space the births of their children, access the health care that they need, particularly preventatively, their children are healthier."
Judd helped host Charlotte's stop on the Women Vote 2012 Summit Tour, a national series sponsored by the Obama campaign. She will return to North Carolina in September as a DNC delegate, representing Williamson County, Tennessee.
